World Cup Sprint Relay China 2019: Maps and Results

Sprint-Relay-Map

Switzerland with Elena Roos on the last leg won the Sprint Relay in the World Cup Final in China after a tight battle against Sweden (3 teams in the battle for the win on the last leg) and Norway. In the end one top Swiss teams was better than three Swedish, and Switzerland could celebrate the win ahead of Sweden 2 and Norway.

The Swiss winning team started off with Simona Aebersold on the first leg – who did her job and kept up with Tove Alexandersson on the first leg. On the second leg Matthias Kyburz struggled in the first part of the leg, but saved the day through an excellent finish, nearly closing the gap to Sweden’s Emil Svensk (+13 seconds in the end). Joey Hadorn ran an excellent third leg for the Swiss, nearly catching up Gustav Bergman and sending Elena Roos out only 5 seconds behind Sweden.

Roos decided by executing her orienteering better than her competitors

Roos decided by executing her orienteering better than her competitors – both Norway and all of the Swedish teams lost a lot of time before the arena passage on the last leg – worst were the mistakes for the Swedish first team with Karolin Ohlsson, where overall World Cup winners Tove Alexandersson and Gustav Bergman had run on the earlier legs.

The World Cup Final in China finishes with a regular Sprint on Tuesday morning CET.

Overall Team World Cup
